Sea of Thieves' closed beta starts at the end of January

Sea of Thieves Closed Beta Coming January 24-29! - Xbox Wire Pirate sim Sea of Thieves gets a closed beta later this month

Custom controllers for specific games aren't always great and they are rarely worth getting - a paintjob is unlikely to really make you want to spend even more on a controller. The game received a 20th March release date in December, and as it wrapped up alpha testing at the same time, the next step is a closed beta test. If you are one of the lucky ones who will be able to participate in the beta, you will find the game Xbox or Windows Store library 24 hours before the Closed Beta begins, so you can download and install the game (if you digitally pre-ordered/joined the Insider Program). Anyone who joined the Sea of Thieves Insider Programme prior to December 1, 2017 will be eligible for CBT as well as anyone who preordered the game.

It's a nice take on the undersea motif of "Sea of Thieves", with this special edition controller coming in a deep purple body that's been made translucent to reveal the laser-etched barnacle-like details carved in its inner side.

Pre-orders for the highly anticipated Sea of Thieves - Xbox One are LIVE at Amazon!

The closed beta will be a "bespoke" experience according to Rare and it will give players a taste of the pirate action ahead of the launch.

What content will be available in the Sea of Thieves Closed Beta? We won't be testing the full game during this Closed Beta phase: we want to keep a good selection of things up our sleeves for players to discover at launch.
